Surprisingly the museum was well maintained. There was a guide that will tell you all of the story behind batik collection and the meaning behind. There is a souvenir shop if you want to buy some gifts. There is also a restaurant that you can visit also.

Visited this museum during my time in Solo. It was amazing. There were hundreds of pieces of batik, all of which demonstrated incredible skill and craftsmanship, and the guide was able to explain everything I wanted to know about them. The old colonial mansion which houses the museum was also amazing to look at; the architecture was stunning. Highly recommended... More

Coming to the museum is like going to another place. Very serene and informative. The collection of the batik that they have is impressive. The other thing to enjoy is the process of making the art of Batik it self is really fascinating. Overall it is a must visit when you're in town.

A must visit museum if you are in Solo, if you are a batik and arts enthusiast. The entrance fee is 35,000 rupiah and there's a guide assigned us who took us to 7 rooms (i think) filled with Batik and its history.

The displayed collection of more than 1050 batik works of a bride origin is truly amazing. If you compare the Jogja Batik Museum ti this one Jogja's is small and dark. The Danar hadi in Solo is just excellent, I could spend here a few days staring at the sarongs. It's a pity it's not allowed to take photos inside.... More

Price included a local english speaking guide (very good english). Impressive collection, very well displayed. After making our own batiks in the morning (independent activity, different business), we appreciated the amazing quality and number (>1000) batiks present.
